Florida Flood Watch Continues, Tropical Rains Expected

Monday features some sun but periods of showers and storms once again.  Heavy rain is possible, so the flood watch continues for both the east coast metro area and the Gulf coast.  A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at the Atlantic beaches.  Highs on Monday will be in the low 90s.

Tuesday will bring some sun and periods of showers and storms to the Gulf coast, while the east coast metro area will see sun in the morning and widespread showers and storms in the afternoon.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Wednesday will see a return to the summertime pattern of sun in the morning and showers and storms during the mid to late afternoon.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Thursday will feature mostly sunny skies alternating with showers and storms along the Gulf coast, while the east coast metro area will see good sun in the morning and showers and storms in the afternoon.  Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Friday’s forecast calls for good sun and some afternoon showers and storms.  Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.

In the tropics, the low we’ve been watching was about 75 miles southeast of Jacksonville early on Monday.  This feature has a low chance of developing before it reaches land during the day on Monday.  But it will bring heavy rain and gusty winds to areas of northern Florida and Georgia.
